What Is The Meaning Of Life?
At one time or another, every one stops (or is forced to stop) and asks, “Who am I? What am I doing? What is the meaning of life?” This, by no means, is a trivial question! A lot of theories exist in different parts of the world about the purpose of life, about what one ought to do, but this question still has no straight answer.
Some say life is a journey, that destination does not matter as long as you enjoy the ride. Some say life is a roller coaster, so enjoy the ride. Some say life is about achieving whatever you want, just going for it. Some say life is about feeling, about soaking up every moment.
Apparently, life is about a lot of things. To discover the meaning of life, one has to struggle, and even then one is not guaranteed to find an answer. Still, the yogis try to find it by aiming for ‘moksha’ – a state of true freedom – by eternal fasting on mountain tops; the stoners try to find it by eternally smoking their lives away.
How does one even begin to answer such a seemingly obvious yet extremely hard question? Not to forget weird!
